The most common symptom of a hernia is a swelling in the groin or abdomen that may be more noticeable when you cough, strain or stand up.

Hernias may not cause pain, but they will not resolve without surgery. If left untreated they will grow larger, and some hernias could be at risk of strangulation.

This is a dangerous complication in which the contents of a hernia can’t be pushed back, the tissue or bowel is pinched causing pain, obstruction and sometimes cutting off the blood supply so that the tissue dies.

Hernia surgery can repair the weakness in the muscle wall, prevent strangulation, relieve pain and place the hernia contents back in their correct position.
